Marco at first I have to admit I was a little frustrated about your comment. But the more I thought about it the more it was realized that this is a perspective that needs to be addressed.
I agree with you that there are frustratingly poor academic programs out there. Public school systems are overcrowded and underfunded causing a plethora of educational disadvantages. This has caused a surge of alternative education programs... and yes you are right many are sadly less than college prepatory. But let's not throw New River Academy's advanced academics program into that mix without doing some research.
For the above reasons New River Academy was founded as an advanced academic solution. We are in agreement about the state of our nations education. And yes, New River Academy is expensive as most quality programs are. But New River Academy is a character development program that also offers financial aid via scholarships.
As a proud teacher, I am also a dedicated administrator, at New River Academy allow me to illustrate a couple of impressive points regarding the advanced academics. This years graduates earned 100% college acceptance letters to these institutions:
Tracy d'Arbeloff- Dartmouth College
Matt Hill- Colorado School of Mines and Engineering, $10,000 Merit Scholarship
Stephen Forster- Virginia Tech
Chase Simmons- University of Georgia Athens
Palmer Miller- Colgate
Brian Boyle- University of NH
This list of college acceptances alone should be a testament that New River Academy is recognized by the nations best universities as a top-shelf educational option.
With the academic concerns and points Marco makes it really is not that hard to outperform 90% of the nations schools. Here are a few New River Academy advantages.
A. Over 50% of New River Academy students receive college credit through our Advanced Placement program. New River Academy is a College Board approved Advanced Placement educational institution.
B. New River Academy offers a SAT course that places students over 150 points above the national SAT score average.
C. Individualized instruction from professional educators is proving to meet personal learning needs.
D. New River Academy seeks advanced students seeking honors and advanced instruction.
E. New River Academy offers jobs to quality inspirational instructors who care.
Marco... thank you for illustrating this perspective about our program and providing the opportunity to illustrate New River Academy's academic integrity. You have provided me with a learning opportunity today.
